Week 24 – Motion design, After Effects principles

Learning about the motion design continues. This week we deepened our knowledge to After Effects and you will get to see some results. It has been fun to play with the program and learn how the all the effects, 3D cameras, lights and the motion paths works.

We watched another LinkdIn movie about the After Effects (After Effects Apprentice 02: Basic Animation (2h 19m) by Chris Meyer and Trish Meyer.) and followed the lesson showed which showed how they were making a short motion design movie. After that it was our turn to make a short movie from our own design. My theme was Graphic Design and I wanted to use moving the camera in it. The idea is that the graphic pen is revealing the text and swiping it off as well while drawing with handles. Here’s the result for my movie.

The sketches for the short movie.


The rendered movie in Vimeo embeded to the WordPress.

The file structure in After Effect. I want to keep the file structure nice and need. So there’s different folders for the comps, images, backgrounds and Illustrations.
